This fundraising policy is intended to ensure the proper collection and disbursement of fundraising dollars received and that benefits of fundraising are properly credited to the correct soccer team or individual soccer player(s). Prior to the fundraising event the MapleBrook Executive Committee must approve all outside fundraising. A list of approved events will be available on the website. Please submit the “Request for Approval Of or Notice Of a Fundraiser Event” form to the Executive Committee prior to the actual fundraising event and prior to any advertising for an event. The club is happy to help promote your event if sufficient prior notice is given. Please note, that even if an event has been approved for other teams, each team that plans to raise funds needs to submit the Request form. And, if an event was approved in a prior season, it still needs to be approved again for the current season. All fundraising monies received shall be given to the team treasurer to be divided among their team. If the approved fundraiser is a total team activity, each player will be given an equal credit towards their team’s soccer fees. In the event of individual fundraising, only the players participating in the fundraising activity should be given credit towards their fees. Team managers and coaches do not have the authority to use these fundraising funds for gifts, team parties or other outside purchases. The purpose of fundraising dollars is to lessen the financial burden of soccer expenses , i.e., for soccer team fees or for individual player soccer equipment expenses.
**Note: Please do not advertise your fundraising event until you have heard that it has been approved by the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors. It would be awkward to let people know that an event has been cancelled.
